John F. Kennedy, 1961 Ford Thunderbird

John F. Kennedy (1961-1963): 1961 Ford Thunderbird Convertible This was the first year of the Thunderbird's much sleeker “Bullet Bird” styling. It held the dual honors that year -- it was the Indianapolis 500 pace car and 50 of the '61 T-Birds were driven in JFK's inaugural parade. (It probably helped that Ford executive Robert McNamara was named secretary of Defense.) ABC PHOTO ARCHIVES / Courtesy of FPG/GETTY
